    I enjoyed his poems. My favorites were The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, The Eolian Harp, and Christabel. The rhythms were fun and enjoyable to read, especially out loud. Favorite quotes:The stilly murmur of the distance sea tells us of silence. Tis well to be bereft of promis'd good, that we may lift the soul, and contemplate with lively joy the joys we cannot share.

    The Rime and Kubla Khan remain the highlights. Whilst I read all the rest I can't say that any of them resonate perhaps through lack of effort on my part.

    Where Wordsworth deals more with the down-to-earth, realistic subjects, Samuel Taylor Coleridge deals much more with the fantastical. Among my favorites are "Kubla Khan" and "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner." As with Wordsworth, I recommend looking for themes of longing in the poems, and also compare how he handles subjects in comparison to Wordsworth. Great read!

    There are a few great, many good, many fair, few bad, and many I didn't read. The intro notes that Coleridge was never considered a "great" poet. Indeed. I'm sure as I return to this and my opinion will change, but I'm through for now.

    The most beautifully written poems ever. This is my favourite poet by far.

    I love Kubla Khan and the Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner. I had originally read both in AP English in High School. Thanks, Mr. Brimeyer
